Try this approach. First, uninstall the existing Lexmark X1240 printer driver from your pc.
  1. On your computer, go to Start.
  2. Go to Programs.
  3. Go to Lexmark X1200 Series folder.
  4. Go to Tools.
  5. Uninstall.
After the uninstall process, reboot your pc when prompted.
When your pc turns on, check your system if it's running on 32-bit or 64-bit. Go to Start > right-click on Computer > click on Properties. Take note of the System Type.
Use the link below and download the file that corresponds to your system type:
- Lexmark X1240 Printer Driver for Windows 7 32-bit - Lexmark X1240 Printer Driver for Windows 7 64-bit
Execute the file. Simply follow the instructions on your computer screen to complete the installation.

My lexmark x1240 all-in-one will not print. It saves XPS files and when I go to open them it will not open them. I have already installed the XPS reader. Also, when I try to scan, a box pops up saying...


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


You may also try to update your printer driver by visiting the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/lgJCxt. Select your operating system, download and execute the file.



Try to scan again to verify that the problem is fixed.



If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support for additional assistance.

I have downloaded my printer x1240, but I cannot scan nor copy it is not been downloaded how do I get that back up?


The scan software can only be installed using the installation cd that came with your printer. The scan software is not available for download since it's a big file. If you don't have the cd, better call Lexmark at 1-800- LEXMARK(1-800-539-6275). They can better assist you with that. They might send you the cd. Good luck!

Lexmark X6150 Inkjet - Problems Communicating with Printer


For scanning - use window drivers, try under window Photo Gallery. Works fine. For printing, the problem is when it tries to "delete" a file it prints it fails. Can not figure this one out.

Lexmak x1240 all in one will not communicate with computer


Hi, I am writing you regarding your problem with the printer.

If the printer is still not printing, try first replacing the usb cable, and try a different USB port.


If still no luck , then you will probably need to reinstall the driver software, either from CD , or downloading the file from Lexmark website.

If you do not have the disk you must download the software from Internet, follow instructions below,

Click here:Official Lexmark Drivers and Software

A web page will open, follow instructions, select model, select operative system etc., and click on download .
Chose to download the file in my documents when asked.
After downloading, find the file,double click on the file ,then if you get in troubles, follow the instructions below to reset and reinstall drivers:

  • Unplug printer USB.
  • Go to control panel >> installed printers in Windows and remove (delete ) any installed printer from printer list.
  • Download driver from website, or use the disk and run the install file.
  • Follow driver installation wizard.
  • Plug back printer when prompted from installation wizard.
Always start printer setup with printer unplugged, and chose printer as default during install.
